Monster Hunter Stories 2, the second installment of the famous Nintendo Switch franchise, will be released simultaneously worldwide on July 9, 2021.
This was announced by Capcom, a software development house, during the conference that is taking place in these minutes. This title is the sequel to the spin-off of the same name released in 2017 in Japan and the following year in the rest of the world for mobile devices and Nintendo 3DS.
A Deluxe version has also been announced which will contain a new outfit for Ena, armor for the player, a set of stickers, an exclusive haircut, and outfits for Navirou. Those who pre-order the game will be entitled to another exclusive item for Ena.
If in the first chapter we met people able to establish a friendship with monsters called Riders, as well as the usual hunters, in Monster Hunter Stories 2 we will find ourselves facing the near extinction of a species, that of the Rathalos.
Fortunately, we will meet a person who has been entrusted with an egg from which a small Rathalos will be born and the protagonist, a young Rider named Red, will have to take care of him and raise him as best as he can. Red and his trusty “squire” will then go around the world to try to uncover the terrifying mystery behind the huge decrease in Rathalos specimens.
This is not the only chapter of the famous franchise that will land on the hybrid console this year. On March 26, in fact, Monster Hunter Rise will be released on Nintendo Switch, an RPG developed by Capcom itself. This time, there will be no friendship stories with monsters: we will go back to being ruthless hunters.
